This Japanique Jacket is a very light weight silk in a deep tealy blue color with lots of black crackle lines that suggest it was done with a wax or rice paste resist batik, but we can't be sure. It seems quite old - even the lining looks to be pre-WWII, printed traditional elements in purple on a khaki color.

And there's a secret pocket on the right side only!

Each Japanique Jacket starts out as a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures meant to be worn on top of a kimono. Most vintage michiyuki won't fit larger frames, so we modified the traditional garment slightly (removed the snaps and tacked the panels back to create lapels) to make a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18. Japanique Jackets could also be crossed over and belted on a smaller sized person. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly, see measurements given.
